Michigan State vs. Nebraska, 11.17

Nebraska signee Dedrick Mills, a junior college running back from Garden City Community College in Kansas, takes in the pregame festivities before a Huskers game against Michigan State at Memorial Stadium on Nov. 17.

Nebraska honored 19 seniors Saturday before its game against Michigan State.

A chunk of the Huskers' future also was present.

Rush end Mosai Newsom (Waverly, Iowa) and running backs Dedrick Mills (Garden City, Kansas) and Ronald Thompkins (Loganville, Georgia) were among the Husker commitments on visits this weekend.

Mills is enjoying a big season at Garden City Community College, while Thompkins is recovering from an ACL tear.

The biggest name expected in Lincoln this weekend was Ty Robinson, a four-star defensive end from Gilbert, Arizona. It was unclear if Robinson arrived. He played a game Friday night and was not on the field before Saturday's game against the Spartans.

Three-star prospects Myles Farmer and Dru Mathis were. Farmer is a 6-foot-3 safety from Atlanta, and Mathis is a 6-3 inside linebacker from Moorpark, California.

There was an even bigger presence from the 2020 and 2021 recruiting pool.

Turner Corcoran, a 2020 offensive tackle prospect, was in Lincoln. The Lawrence, Kansas, native is ranked a Rivals top-100 recruit. The 6-6, 280-pounder already has offers from Nebraska, Ohio State, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU and Michigan.

T.J. Bollers, a 2021 defensive end prospect from Tiffin, Iowa, and Travion Ford, a 2021 linebacker prospect from St. Charles, Missouri, were making unofficial visits. Jermaine Hamilton-Jordan, a 2021 linebacker prospect out of Kansas City, Missouri, and 2021 athlete Avante Dickerson, out of Omaha Westside, also were at the game.

Lincoln Southwest senior Caden McCormack, Bishop Neumann junior Eli Vedral and Elkhorn South sophomore Teddy Prochazka (who has a scholarship offer) were among the in-state prospects at the game.

Robinson has already visited Oregon and USC, and he's planning to visit Alabama next week.
